Halkidiki is a large peninsula in the northwestern Aegean Sea, resembling a hand with three fingers, Kassandra, Sithonia, and the autonomous Mount Athos region which constitutes the easternmost part of the peninsula with an extensive network of Orthodox and Greek-Orthodox monasteries. A magical coastline with crystal clear waters, unique destinations and traditional cuisine! The sandy beaches lie beneath the lush landscape and more than 26 award winning spots for their quality of services will give you peace and relaxation.
Halkidiki is only a couple of hours away from Thessaloniki. An accessible destination even for a daily trip. Sailing distances are really short and weather in the area is calm and sunny throughout the summer. All around the peninsula sailors can find safe bays and harbors with basic amenities.
Most of the coastal villages in Halkidiki are well organized, offering visitors high quality services (hospital, restaurants, beach bars, banks, car rentals, super markets, hotels etc.). Most of them have secure harbors with fresh water and electricity distributed to all docks.
- Greek mythology often refers to Halkidiki: the earthquake giant, called Egelados is buried in Kassandra. Athos has been reformed by the rock that Egelados threw against the Gods, and Sithonia owns its name to Sithonas, son of Poseidon.
- Mount Athos, known in Greece as the Holy Mountain (AgionOros), is the easternmost peninsula in Halkidiki containing 20 monasteries. The region is governed by the ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople. Only men are permitted to enter Mount Athos. Most of sailors choose to sail near the peninsula and point out the monasteries and the mountainous landscape.
